After 50 years of baseball, the Mets finally have their franchise player. David Wright signed an 8-year contract worth $140 million, making him the highest paid player in club history. The deal should bring him to the end of his career in an orange and blue uniform.
Wright is the soft-spoken leader of the squad, able to talk to any of his young teammates and teach them how to handle each situation. On top of that, not only is he the guy that you would want your daughter to marry, but also he may be the most humble athlete in all of sports.
